Suggested collateral pathways in cases of splenic artery thrombosis include anastomosis between the right gastroepiploic artery (from the gastroduodenal artery) and left gastroepiploic artery (from the splenic artery) on the greater curvature of the stomach and gastric branches of the left gastric artery and short gastric arteries (9).

Ligation of the hypo gastric arteries and its complications in the resection of cancer of the rectum.
It was surrounded by some fairly significant vasculature, but it appeared these were just branches of the gastric arteries in normal anatomic location.
The technique of introducing these radioactive spheres first involves embolisation of the gastroduodenal and right gastric arteries and is followed by a single injection of the treatment into the hepatic artery by arteriography, delivering 1.
This dual-phase protocol produces angiographic-quality delineation of gastric arteries and veins as well as visualization of liver metastases.
Statistical Analysis: To verify if the distribution of frequencies observed for the 30 examined animals is in accordance with the literature, we applied a tack test proceeded by the [chi square] test (qui-square) with a level of significance of 5% to test if the nullity hypothesis is true for the number of gastric arteries, the origin of the celiac artery and the number of main ramifications of the lienal artery.
It was observed a variation that consisted of the existence of two left gastric arteries associated with the hepatic and lienal arteries in 3 animals (10%).
The numbers of gastric arteries, main ramifications of the lienal artery, as well as the origin of the celiac artery are independent of the sex of the animal.
A little frequent variation was also found and it showed two left gastric arteries associated with the hepatic and lienal arteries in 10% of the animals, while Sleight & Thomford, with the utilization of the necropsy dissection method noticed this same variation in only 2% of the cases, the trifurcation in 64% of the cases and the bifurcation in 34%.
